Yes this works with slightly overly ripened mangoes because they are high in myrecene a terpenoid also in cannabis. If you want to try this get a ripe mango then eat it, then wait about 30-45 minutes and smoke. You should notice the effects potentate each other.

EDIT: to the above people saying it's placebo or doesn't work, it certainly does. You need an actual mango though, no juice. If you do some research behind why it works you may be surprised. I've tried this before, not in a while but it's neat.

Sweet, it has to be RIPE! The flesh should look like a peach's, juicy and orange, but it has fibers in it. Mangoes are delicious! :D

Aw man, that shit's like a waxy leather. Jam your fingernail in there, cut it end to end, then rip the skin off (it's strong enough to peel it off in 1 or 2 tries). All that'll be left is sweet mango goodness. And the seedpod in the middle. Don't eat that.

They can be red or green and be ripe or not, so squeeze it and see if it feels slightly mushy but firm, and sniff it where the stem is. If you can smell mango goodness, it's ready.

The pre-smoke mango thread comes up every few days or so. :)


This should help... a few things I've posted in past threads:


---------------


For a much higher concentration of myrcene (the terpene in mangoes, responsible for the
'enhanced effect' noticed by some), a more economic investment would be a bottle of hops
extract
, or lemongrass oil.


These are generally found in organic shops, as simple flavoring elements and supplements,
that normally would not be advertised or (well-)known for their beneficial anti-cancer/anti-mutagen,
sedative, and cannabinoid-enhancing
properties.



Fresh and homegrown cannabis, that has been properly cared for, should already be fairly loaded with myrcene.


People will only notice the greatest amount of improvement, when this 'trick' is used in conjunction with older,
lower-grade herb, where its terpene content has already diminished.



Some lemongrass oils are up to 25% myrcene, and you get trace amounts of limonene (another
terpene in cannabis), as well....



A mango is healthy and tasty, but effect-wise, if it's the myrcene you're after, there are better options. Posted Image



There are terpenes that can benefit and enhance your life, as well the effect of your cannabis, in many plants...

for police officers, claiming they get 'high' in the line of duty when clearing out a bust.
It's in fact the terpenes that cause this feeling, not cannabinoids.



Alpha-Pinene Is found in various trees and plants, including cannabis. "This terpene
is at the highest level in the Super Silver Haze. So if you like pine-tree smelling and
tasting weed, think of growing this strain, or use it for crossings."

***Limonene "is a cyclic terpene. It is a colourless liquid at room temperatures
with an extremely strong smell of oranges." This is where many strains get their citrus
orange, lemon flavors and odors from.

Sabinene is found in high levels in many haze varieties.

***Myrcene, or β-myrcene, - THIS is the terpene available in some fruits and
plants, including mangoes, that causes people to feel that eating mangoes before
smoking, will get them 'higher', which is somewhat true, only if the myrcene levels
are high enough, and not diluted by so much plant flesh. For a more reliable effect,
simply sniff your preferably fresh bud the instant you break it open, and enjoy that
nice fragrance, just prior to smoking it. True widow strains develop high levels of
myrcene.

The fresher the herb, the more terpenes it likely has available. The terpenes are
released so easily, that in some commercial bud they have often already mostly
dissipated, before people have a chance to use the canna, in which case additional
terpenes from fruit can help.

TERPENES IN GRAPH:
1- ALPHA PINENE
2- CAMPHENE
3- BETA PINENE
4- SABINENE
5- DELTA-3 CARENE
6- ALPHA PHELLANDRENE
7- BETA-MYRCENE
8- ALPHA TERPINENE
9- LIMONENE
10- 1.8-CINEOLE
11- Y-TERPINENE
12- CIS-OCIMENE
13- TRANS-OCIMENE
14- ALPHA TERPINOLENE
15- TRANS-CARYOPHYLLENE
16- ALPHA HUMULENE





-----------------


**** And about mango juice......




I don't know the specifics pertaining to the juice in question, but for the most part store-bought and
bottled
mango juices either will not work, or they will not work well.




This is because they have often been heated or 'flash pasteurized' to the point that a large quantity of
the heat-sensitive myrcene, the terpene which promotes the intensified effect, has dissipated.




In the future, you can always buy a mango or two and puree them in your blender, or even by hand
in a plastic bag Posted Image You can 'drink' it as-is, or add a little of your favorite juice, or water.

Posted Image


Posted Image


Posted Image


Or, you can go even a little further, and incorporate that puree into an edible canna recipe... Myrcene, intensifies cannabinoid cellular permeability.


Posted Image


Posted Image


A CannAmbrosia Fruit Salad madewith tincture, is another way to benefit from the enhanced sensations, provided by additional terpenes in conjunction with your cannabinoids...

Posted Image

(And edible drinkables Posted Image )
Posted Image


Posted Image


Posted Image



A tip - Simply enjoying an oil burner for aromatherapy, containing a blend of lemongrass, nutmeg and sandalwood oils WILL produce a more euphoric and narcotic sensation while smoking. Do NOT attempt to directly inhale the vapors produced by your heated essential oils, this is not healthy, nor is it necessary to benefit from the terpenes! Feel free to experiment with other essential oils to produce a variety of sensations, from relaxing, to energizing. Posted Image




--------------


Don't forget, MOST store-bought mango juices have been flash-pasteurized, even those cheaper bottles that
don't mention how they were processed (those are often the worst)... this means that the majority of the terpene
content you're looking for, is gone.


Want a fresh, healthy mango drink, WITH a decent myrcene content? Save a few dollars on the over-priced, watered-
down juice, and just buy a mango or two, and put them through your blender. Posted Image



And if you're smoking fresh, or properly cured home-grown.. don't expect a simple mango with the teeny tiny myrcene they
have, to do much for you
.


A mango is best for older, and over-dried commercial bud, that has already lost much of the myrcene content it once had.


If your bud is decent at all, you're only likely to notice an increase in sensation if you use a better source for myrcene..

Again, lemongrass oil/extracts and hops extracts are great. Posted Image




Anyhow... hope this helps! Posted Image Posted Image
